China Pipe Flange Distributor, Supplier, Exporter 304 / 304L / 316 / 316L Stainless Steel Pipe Flange Size 1/2″ (15 NB) to 48″ (1200NB) Standards ANSI ASME BS DIN EN JIS Easy To Disassemble And Separate Pipes For Repair And Regular Maintenance, Extremely Corrosion-Resistant And More Durable Than Carbon Steel Flanges
The flange is a part that connects the pipe and the pipe to each other and is connected to the pipe end. There are holes on the flanges, and bolts make the two flanges tightly connected. The flanges are sealed with gaskets. The flanges are divided into threaded flanges, blind flanges, slip on flanges, lap joint flanges, weld neck flanges, and socket weld flanges, etc.
In every metal application, corrosion is an important consideration. In the U.S., around $9 billion goes to handling pipeline corrosion incidences. Metals are acted upon by rust, chemicals, as well as other environmental factors. Therefore, it would be best if you chose flanges that can withstand these factors. Stainless steel becomes a perfect choice since it has a high resistance to corrosion.
Stainless steel is durable and can withstand a lot of pressure. Although aluminum could be a cheaper option, it cannot withstand as much stress.
In industries, the temperatures could get a bit extreme. However, stainless steel flange fittings can withstand temperatures without deformation or warping. Therefore, at no point will your system be compromised.
